For me, one of my favorite things about summer,
is the watermelon.
I like to keep it cut into bite sized chunks
in the refrigerator all during the season.
It's the perfect snack,
side with a sandwich for lunch,
or even for dessert.
When buying watermelon, did you know
you should look for a lighter colored area
somewhere on it?
That's a good indication it has ripened in the field.
Also, opt for the heaviest one you can get.
In additon to the uses above,
you can make a pretty salad for your
4th of July table.
Watermelon, Blueberry and Feta Cheese Salad
In a large bowl, mix together:
2 cups watermelon, cubed
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
1/2 small onion, chopped
Shake together in a small jar,
juice of 1 lemon,
2T. extra virgin olive oil
Pour over and toss with the watermelon.
Sprinkle 2 oz. crumbled feta cheese
Handful of fresh basil, thinly sliced
over the top.
(The blueberries are all hiding!)
Happy 4th of July!
